Hockey Canada announced Wednesday that Ryan Jankowski will replace Kevin Prendergast as the head scout of the men's Program of Excellence.

As head scout, Jankowski, 38, will be responsible for all player evaluation and recruitment for Canada's National Junior Team and National men's Under-18 Team development and selection camps, as well as evaluations with the under-17 program.

Jankowski spent the last three seasons as an amateur scout with the Montreal Canadiens after working five seasons as the assistant general manager with the New York Islanders.

The native of Calgary, Alberta, also served as chief European scout for the Islanders from 2003 to 2006.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
